Sylvius Gin comes from the former Dutch distillery Onder de Boompjes de Schiedam. This gin is a tribute to Dr. Franciscus Sylvius who was the name of the giver of Genievre around 1650. At the same time, Onder de Boompjes began to shoot gin. This gin also uses the herbs and spices that were available at the time, namely: star anise, licorice, cinnamon, cumin and lavender. Sylvius Gin is traditionally used in small copper kettles by the star burner Justus Walop. The whole production process is still done in an old fashioned way.
